Interesting story in the FT today. Wipro is carrying out a cloud computing experiment to see the potential cloud computing has in changing the way the outsourcing industry works.
The pilot has found it takes just 36 minutes to set up a network for a project rather than the 43 days it takes now.
500 employees are linked up to centralised servers holding software that they can all access.
The article also describes cloud computing as the new battleground for IT outsourcing suppliers.
In July I attended a presentation by Robert Morgan, director at Hamilton Bailey which advises suppliers, and he said Indian suppliers will have to be bold in the cloud to retain their strong market position.
It looks like Wipro is readying itself for a bold drive into the cloud.
